Latest Tech Being used for Hijab woman

Millions of Muslim women choose to wear a hijab, but it is not always an easy thing to do every day. Here, we take a look at some of the latest technology being used to help hijabis to feel more comfortable, and make day-to-day life a little easier.

One of the latest advances is the Nike hijab, which is designed for use during sports and exercise. It is made to stay in place, thanks to its pull over design. The material used helps wick away sweat, leaving women feeling cool and comfortable underneath. It is helping encourage more women to play sports, at levels from school right up to professional athletes.

Another new style of hijab which has recently been developed is the VEIL. It is designed to repel water, and is also climate adapting. It’s made from waterproof nylon fabric and also reflects up to 80% of sunlight. This means it can keep the wearer up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit cooler, and when it is raining, water isn’t absorbed into the fabric. The VEIL hijab significantly reduces chaffing, so it is great for those who want to be comfortable all day.

Another tech advance for hijab-wearing women is the new emoji released which depicts a woman wearing a headscarf. Around half a billion women are thought to wear a hijab, so this new emoji is great news for women worldwide, who now have an icon to represent themselves in messages.

Women are finding creative ways to enjoy technology whilst wearing a hijab too. Some enjoy using their headscarf as a way to keep their phone in place during a conversation, leaving the hands free when carrying out other tasks. Some also say they can be used to keep ear buds in when listening to music on the go!

The internet has also been a huge source of advice and tips for hijabi women. There are thousands of articles online about subjects such as how to look fashionable in a hijab, how to tie it in different ways, and tips and advice for those just starting to wear one. There are even hashtags and social media accounts dedicated to helping hijabi sisters.

You can also find hijab store websites online, where women can browse thousands of different materials, patterns and styles to find something for every occasion. This is a great advance, allowing Muslim women anywhere to buy hijabs, even if they don’t live near a store which sells them.

Apple Vs. Android: witch one should I use?

I have always been a bit of a neutral Smart Phone user. My first smart phone was an android but then during the years I used it I noticed a lot of things I was missing out as everybody used iPhones and Face Timed anybody they could. So, I got an iPhone and to this day I am very pleased with it. Here are my thoughts on these two phone operating system types. 

  • One of my main issues with Android was the Play Store. I had never used an iPhone before but I still didn’t like the way to download apps and search for apps on Android. I think I really didn’t like the design so it put me off quite a bit. App Store is so much easier to use. It is bright, very easy to see the app icons and much quicker to search and find what you are looking for in the store. I personally prefer iOS app store to Google Play Store.
  • A major advantage of using Android is that you can choose from so many different phone models and brands. Most smart phone makers use Android. Well, all of them except Apple. So, if you are willing to have the same phone for the rest of your life (with slight improvements every year) iPhone is totally amazing and the perfect phone for you. If you would like to change it up a bit and use different phone models throughout your lifetime them probably Android phones are your best bet.woman taking picture of sunny city skyline with a smart phone
  • Face time on iOS is such a perfect way to have a quick chat with your friends and loved ones. It has become a necessity to a lot of people.  It is not uncommon to move abroad from your friends and family and is those cases it is crucial to have a way to communicate face to face. Imagine if you are in a long-distance relationship! Sure, you could use Skype but that takes up loading time and it is much harder to use than one quicks Face Time app.
